    I've seen so many blinks claiming that Blackpink can achieve even bigger things than BTS in the USA!
    I just wanted to know what you guys think about it. Can BTS' success be overshadowed by Blackpink's?

    No, I don’t think so. Don’t think bigger or the same but I think they are on the best way to made themselves known in the US.

    BTS sold 100,000+ copies in US alone you think BlackPink could achive that? Highly unlikely.

    With all due respect to BP, no. BTS is lightning in a bottle and nobody in the current generation will be able to duplicate that.

    I don't think so but out of the girl groups they have the biggest chances of breaking into the US market. Their success just wouldn't be as big as BTS.

    I mean do people even know how hard it's to get radio play in the US for a kpop song?..
    If they got the fandom to back up sure..
    BTS career just getting started in the US...
    also having most organized fandom doesn't mean you can have longivity in terms of streams, streaming is really big in the US..West fan bases are not really big in to streaming, we need GP lol this is what BTS and ARMY working on in the long run, the longivity.. Which is very hard, we take step by step..

    I think they could be but bts already have a bigger head start. Also everyone thought cl would make it but somehow that got fucked up so who knows really.

    I don't think any kpop artist can overshadow what BTS has achieved but some people just want to underestimate what BTS is today!!
    That's why u see such questions on social media!! Like this person has something to say too!
    But I think Blackpink can do many great things too.

    The question is would YG let them out of the dungeon enough for them to even try?

    Honestly I don't know if Yg plans anything, he just seems like the person that throws stuff and sees what sticks. If it works he planned it if it didn't he didn't.

    People really underestimate the hard work ARMY and BTS have done to be where they are today. BTS has slowly been rising in the US, it wasn't overnight and it wasn't easy.

    Girl groups are rarely, if ever, more successful than boy groups in Korea. Why do you think it would be different in the US?
    I do think however that out of all GGs from this generation, Black Pink has the best chances to have succes in the US because their sound isn't overly K-pop. Like I mean it has more of an international vibe than Twice or Red Velvet. In general.

    I appreciate their music and out of all gg they have the best shot but let’s be real here, they could definitely get attention but BTS breaking in the west took years, they’ll need GP support and acknowledgement to be stable on the market. If they do make an impact I just hope they don’t end up has one hit wonders like other GG before.
